Carsyn's 2nd Birthday

Carsyn's 2nd birthday was originally setup for Kiddie Acres this past weekend, and then Hurricane Patricia happened and the forecast showed rain all weekend long!  I made a last min call and changed the venue to Safari Champs, an indoor playscape for kids.  Thank goodness I did because it rained non-stop that Saturday and her party would have been ruined.  Of course this meant I only had Friday to completely change her theme!  Luckily both locations were all inclusive and I really only had to switch up her evite and cupcakes.  Safari Champs was a complete success!  Everyone was still able to make it despite the rain soaked road conditions and the kids had a blast.  The Safari theme worked well as Carsy loves monkeys, plus I was able to find the perfect cupcakes to make for her!

Spooktacular BOO-ze Bash! 2015

This past weekend we successfully hosted our annual Halloween bash!  The jell-o shots were aplenty, the costumes amazing and the company always entertaining.  Everyone loved the decorations, we had several new spooky items this year as well as some new foods, introducing the new zombie meat body for snacks!!

80s 8K

Forgot to post about this one!  At the end of September many of us Pfelly lane runners ran the 80's 8K in Cedar Park.  It was my first time running this 4.97 mile race and I had no idea what to expect, I just knew it had hills (my most favorite thing in the entire world...not!).  Thankfully all my marathon training is paying off as I ran an excellent race!

Before.  DeLorean!!! 9/27/2015
It was 65 degrees, 78% humidity, 3 mph winds and partly cloudy at 7:30 am race time. It felt great out! At first I was going to treat it as a training run and keep to a 9:30 pace, but with all the adrenaline pumping and the fact that I felt great, I went ahead and raced it. There were a TON of hills, at minimum 3-4 really good hills and a couple other rolling. I managed to power through it all and even kick it up at the end. New PR baby!

chip time: 00:43:50.1
Avg pace - 8:50

Ry's in Pre-K!

I can't believe how quickly time flies, my little guy started Pre-K this month!  Ryland loves that he now attends a big kid school.  It's great because his school is in the neighborhood, only a 1 mile walk away, and no more daycare!  His first day of school went very well, we all made it through drop off without crying.  So proud of my little man!  He's just so darn cute with his backpack and lunch box.

I think he was a little shell shocked, but no crying!

Cincinnati Trip

The beginning of August we took the kids on their very first airplane flight to visit my brother & family in Cincinnati.  We left late Thursday evening stayed through Sunday afternoon.  They loved the plane ride, it didn't phase them one bit.  I finally got to meet my new niece, Harper, and the kids got to meet their cousins!  It was a reunion long time coming.   The kids played great together and enjoyed staying up way past their bedtimes.  Us parents got little to no sleep.  We had a fabulous time catching up, checking out the zoo & aquarium, visiting with extended family and eating at an awesome German restaurant!

baby Harper!
